Narendra Modi dares Prime Minister to compete with Gujarat’s 10% growth in agriculture

Sadbhavna Mission sets in new political culture in the country, might prove political pundits’ evaluation about Gujarat wrong

Ahmedabad, Saturday: Chief Minister Narendra Modi today that his Sadbhavna Mission has laid the foundation stone of an entirely new political culture in the country, sure to prove all political pundits wrong if ever they attempted to evaluate the State’s achievements with an jaundiced eye.

Rounding up his daylong fast as part of the district-wise Sadbhavna Mission at Bhavnagar, he threw open challenge to the Prime Minister to compete with the developments in Gujarat. He said Gujarat has registered a ten per cent growth in agriculture, against a national average of hardly 2.5 per cent. He felt pity at the Centre’s futile efforts to destabilize Gujarat.

Overwhelmed by the continuous stream of nearly 50,000 people making a beeline at the venue of the fast and 10,000 of them spontaneously joining his fast, he said the political pundits might have to wait till to gauge the public mood and political undertones of the Sadbhavna Missions till all it is over at all the 33 places across the state. He attributed the success of his ongoing mission to the support of six-crore Gujaratis.

Mr. Modi said that Gujarat has provided a new fodder to the political analysts to look at developments taking place here. It has provided a new ray of hope amidst an atmosphere of gloom and pessimism prevailing in India. It has helped people look at things beyond vote bank politics, spreading the poison of communalism and casteism. The State has also attracted global attention. A host of countries like China, Japan, Korea and Canada are keen to partner Gujarat.

He said that tourists’ arrival in the state has increased by 40 per cent during the last decade. Farmers are getting market prices for parting with their land. Car manufacturers are coming in hordes to build 50-lakh cars per year with potential to provide jobs to five-crore youths of Gujarat. Dholera SIR is growing lakhs of rupee from the barren land.

For Bhavnagar, the Chief Minister said that Gujarat’s state-level Republic Day function as well as the 150th anniversary of Prabhashanker Patna in this city. The city’s development would increase by leap and bounds after the Dholera SIR, Ro-Ro service and Kalpsar across the Gulf of Cambay.

It was his eleventh fast as part of day-long fast to be undertaken at seven municipal corporations and 26 districts, since he had launched the state-level Sadbhavna Mission from Ahmedabad on September 17.

Those who spoke about the achievements of Gujarat in various fields included Agriculture Minister Dilipbhai Sanghani, Minister of State Saurabhbhai Patel, Minister of State for Fisheries Purshottam Solanki, Vasanbhai Ahir, Members of Parliament Vijay Rupani and Rajendrasinh Rana, BJP State President R.C.

A discussion with the political parties of Jammu-Kashmir under the leadership of the Hon'ble Prime Minister has just ended. This has been a very positive effort towards the development and strengthening of democracy in Jammu-Kashmir. The meeting took place in a very cordial atmosphere. All the participants expressed their full allegiance to the democracy of India and the Constitution of India.

The Home Minister apprised all the leaders of the improvement in the situation in Jammu-Kashmir.

The Prime Minister listened to every party’s arguments and suggestions with all seriousness and he appreciated the fact that all the people's representatives shared their point of view with an open mind. The Prime Minister laid special emphasis on two important issues in the meeting. He said that we all have to work together to take democracy to the grassroots in Jammu-Kashmir. Secondly, there should be all-round development in Jammu-Kashmir and development should reach every region and every community. It is necessary that there should be an atmosphere of cooperation and public participation.

Hon'ble Prime Minister also pointed out that elections to Panchayati Raj and other local bodies have been successfully held in Jammu-Kashmir. There is improvement in the security situation. About 12,000 crore rupees have directly reached the panchayats after the conclusion of elections. This has accelerated the pace of development in the villages.

The Prime Minister said that we have to approach the next important step related to the democratic process in Jammu-Kashmir i.e. assembly elections. The process of delimitation has to be completed expeditiously so that every region and every section gets adequate political representation in the assembly. It is necessary to give a proper representation to the Dalits, backwards and people living in tribal areas.

There was a detailed discussion in the meeting regarding the participation of everybody in the process of delimitation. All the parties present in the meeting have agreed to participate in this process.

The Prime Minister also emphasized the cooperation of all the stakeholders to take Jammu-Kashmir on the path of peace and prosperity. He said that Jammu-Kashmir is moving out of the vicious circle of violence and moving towards stability. New hope and new confidence have emerged among the people of Jammu-Kashmir.

The PM also said that we will have to work day and night to strengthen this trust and work together to improve this confidence. Today's meeting is an important step for strengthening the democracy and the development and prosperity of Jammu-Kashmir. I thank all the political parties for attending today's meeting.

Thanks
